She’s faced with the threat that everyone will find out she’s a freak, as if the struggle to figure out her new-found abilities wasn’t enough pressure.

Will she be able to fulfill these overwhelming demands while solving the mystery that is the ghost of Olivia Owen?

REVIEW BY: Arianna, age 13 years, 3 months

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

This book was absolutely wonderful! It was a great young adult read. I love how much emotion and detail the author included. 

My favorite part is when Crystal rescues Olivia from her abusive boyfriend because it is a really happy, joyful and important moment. I also like when Crystal's mom is unsuspecting when her boyfriend proposes even with all of her psychic abilities. 

My favorite character is Crystal because she is very brave and curious which can be a foolish combination, but Rades pulled it off. She never gives up and uses her mind to figure everything out. Even with all of her own personal drama she still helps Olivia. 

I recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure, action and friendship. 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 12 and up.
